Dr. Celena Kusch, associate professor of American Literature in the department of Languages, Literature, and Composition, has been named co-chair of the H.D. International Society, a society dedicated to the study of the writer H.D. (Hilda Doolittle).
Kusch’s co-chair is Dr. Rebecca Walsh, assistant professor of English at North Carolina State University.
H.D. was one of the pioneers in literature in the first half of the 20th century and she played an important role in bringing issues of gender to the forefront of the global literary, film, and artistic communities of the time.
The H.D. International Society works to assist scholars, students, artists, and the general public in sharing resources and information, establishing collaborations, and supporting the production of scholarly and creative responses to H.D. and members of her circle.
The H.D. International Society recently launched a new website.
